European Competitive Telecommunications Association



Axelle Tessandier 200

ECTA Regulatory Conference 2017 chaired by
Axelle Tessandier, founder of AXL Agency.


Conference Overview

With the ongoing review of the regulatory framework entering into interinstitutional negotiations, the draft European Electronic Communications Code proposed by the Commission will be centre-stage at this year`s Regulatory Conference. In addition to the core questions of competition and investment at the heart of the reform effort, the conference will also focus on other challenges and opportunities for the European communications sector: from security over cooperative, connected and automated mobility to service integration and delivery.

Through a series of keynotes and panel discussions, senior policy makers, industry stakeholders and independent experts will debate with each other and with the audience about the optimal pathways and right regulatory environment for the EU electronic communications sector to prosper. A discussion among entrepreneurs, the people who brought competition to European electronic communication markets, will provide an industry-led vision of what the new rules might entail and what is required to ensure that future regulation does not obstruct competition for economic and societal benefit.

Who should attend?

ECTA's conferences are considered to be some of the primary regulatory and competition events for the European communications sector and attract key officials from Europe’s policy-making institutions; European Commission, Parliament and Ministries plus a range of representatives from European Regulators and Competition authorities. Our events provide one of the most important policy-debating forums on electronic communications policy for senior executives, finance/strategy directors, legal, regulatory, economics, public affairs personnel and competition specialists from European, US and Asia-Pac incumbent/alternative operators as well as representatives from law firms, consultancies, financial organisations, analysts and researchers focused on the impact of regulation and competition on the communications sector.

ECTA conferences also attract a wide range of international guests - please click here for more information about travelling from abroad.


The ECTA Regulatory Conference, now in its 14th year, has become the annual meeting place for Europe's electronic communication policy makers and industry leaders.  In addition to the timely and topical conference programme, the event provides an ideal environment in which to network with peers and senior decision makers.  Morning coffee, refreshments breaks, networking lunches and evening cocktail reception provide the perfect opportunities for sharing views with fellow stakeholders and policy makers.
